Brief Answer:
Yes, it is a side effect of the medicine

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that Montek LC is a very safe medicine and is widely used. It can have the side effect of increased sleeping (for the duration that the medicine is taken) but that is not something concerning. If you still feel that his tendency to sleep is a botheration, you can try to move to some alternative although most others will have a similar effect.

It can eb taken along with Amifru plus, concore 2.5, Pantop, strovas tiro 10 etc.

Let me know if I could help further.
